Soccer: Napoli, Juve keep up chase of perfect Roma
Leaders can set new record for best start with win over Chievo31 October, 11:56
Juve thrashed Catania 4-0 in Turin on Wednesday and Napoli won 2-1 at Fiorentina, so both moved up to 25 points from 10 games, closing the gap on Roma to two points.
The Rome side can restore the five-point lead they started the week with and set a new record for the best-ever start to a Serie A campaign if they continue their perfect record by notching their 10th consecutive win when they host bottom side Chievo Verona later on Thursday.
Promoted Hellas Verona continued their good form with a 2-0 home win over Sampdoria.
They moved up to joint-fourth with Inter, who also have 19 points, eight behind Roma, after being held 1-1 at Atalanta on Tuesday.
AC Milan are 15 points off the pace in 10th place after they drew 1-1 at home with seventh-placed Lazio Wednesday.
Brazil playmaker Kaka gave Milan the lead by curling in his first goal since rejoining the seven-time European champions in the close season, but defender Michael Ciani levelled to earn Lazio a share of the points.
